Remember a while back when I posted a review of Cooking Light Dinnertime Survival Guide? Today I’m sharing another recipe from that awesome cookbook, Easy Garlic Fries. You all know I love garlic, right? So of course I would love these fries! They are so much better than packaged frozen french fries. Besides the garlic, they are topped with Parmesan cheese, which my daughter loves. The fries are baked in the oven and then finished on the stove with a mixture of butter and garlic. Yum!
Just one tip: Make sure your parchment paper is NOT touching the walls or shelf of the oven, or it will burn, causing your smoke alarm to go off and ruining your potatoes because you have to take them out of the oven so the fire alarm stops. Not that I would know or anything.
- 1½ pounds baking potatoes (Russet), peeled and sliced into ¼ inch thick strips
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 8 garlic cloves, minced ( about 5 teaspoons)
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons finely shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Combine sliced potatoes and oil in a large zip close plastic bag, seal the bag, and toss to coat.
- Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with salt. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning after 20 minutes.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the butter and garlic to the pan, cook 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add potatoes and parsley, toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
